Tom Youngs quits Greenwich Borough to fulfil his dream of returning to full-time football
GREENWICH BOROUGH have released midfielder Tom Youngs so he can fulfil his dream of returning to full-time football.
Youngs started his career with Bolton Wanderers where he has Football League experience and has also played for Cray Wanderers in the Ryman League Division One North and Erith Town in the Southern Counties East Football League.
Greenwich Borough returned to pre-season training last Saturday as boss Gary Alexander prepares for the club’s Ryman League Division One South debut season.
A club statement said: “Following a discussion with manager Gary Alexander it became apparent that Tom was looking for a full-time contract for next season and football at a higher level.
“The decision was taken as neither Gary or the club wishes to stand in the way of any player in their endeavour to make a career out of the game and play at the highest level.
“Whilst it is indeed disappointing to lose a player of Tom’s quality, we would like to thank Tom for his time with us in our title winning season and we wish him all the best in his future career.”
Youngs scored 14 goals for Erith Town before adding another six in 10 appearances in his short spell at Greenwich Borough, who claimed the Southern Counties East Football League title last season.
Greenwich Borough kick-off their pre-season campaign with a trip to Lancing to play Loxwood on Saturday 9 July (11:00).
